Example text

3 ∆ G◦ : Closed Systems Under Standard Conditions Entropy – spontaneous energy distribution – is thought to overwhelmingly dictate the change in Gibbs energy during energy exchange (1–3). Yet enthalpy also plays a role. Changes in enthalpy (∆ H) can be measured. Changes in entropy (∆ S) however cannot. Thankfully, when entropy dictates energy exchange, product and reactant concentrations can be measured before and after a chemical reaction, and Gibbs energy availability is associated with the ratio of product-to-reactant concentrations.

Energy cannot spontaneously undergo further exchange at equilibrium. Unequal distributions of energy – the opposite of equilibrium – are described by the scenarios of nonequilibrium and far-from-equilibrium. One of the second laws of thermodyamics (there are two) reveals that energy undergoes spontaneous exchange only in the “downhill” direction. This is an observation that has never been disproven. No one has yet witnessed the spontaneous “uphill” exchange of energy. Steam engines first typified this principle when it was recognized that they operated off or exploited a thermal gradient or temperature differential; heat dependently and spontaneously flows toward cold, never C.

4 Internal Energy (U) Exchanges It is unfortunate that a simple and direct means of quantifying all of the individual energies that comprise the internal energy within a specific system is not yet available. For many students of chemistry this marks a point of retreat. But all is not lost. Energy always reveals itself when it undergoes change. And these changes are readily quantified in the form of heat and work. In fact, the study of thermodynamics evolved from the recognition that work and heat were related aspects of energy (thermo signifies heat energy; dynamics signifies change).
